The San Lorenzo Valley Museum is located at the site of a former church.
Next to the front entrance is a painting of Ben Lomond. Most of the buildings in the painting still exist today.
Due to the fact the museum is a former church, there is information on the past missions in the San Lorenzo Valley Area.
In addition, the museum has information about the flumes that had been built in Boulder Creek for logging.
Ben Lomond was built from various redwood loggers who moved into the city in the 1850s.
Nearby, in downtown Ben Lomond, is a mural to the flumes and the Pacific-Union railroad that ran through the area until 1934.
